Tony Stark (Iron Man) is speeding down I-5 with business rival Sasha Hammer in the passenger seat. After some technical conversation, Sasha attacks Tony with heretofore unrevealed powers. It turns out Ezekiel Stane has given her some type of implants that allow her to do battle with Iron Man. Fortunately, Pepper Potts (Rescue) was monitoring the police band, and flys in to help Tony.
The next day, Hammer Industries' Wingman app goes on line, and Tony's new car is blown up.
